The Rhythm of Life

Whatever you lost through the stroke of destiny, know it was to save you from adversity. One small affliction keeps off greater afflictions; one small loss prevents greater losses. [Mawlana Rumi]

It is a long journey. Some make it, and others fall by the wayside. We all love the beauty of the diamond, but we forget the time and pressure it took to make it. Along the way we become discouraged. It seems too hard. It isn't. It seems impossible. It isn't.

There will be setbacks and failures. Winners are inspired by failure. Losers are afraid of and discouraged by failure. In the wake of failure, winners want to do more, to be more, to do a better job next time. When faced with failures, losers become overwhelmed by the fear of greater failure. They allow the fear to smother them and in the process achieve what they wanted to avoid - a greater failure. The greatest failure is not to try.

There are plenty of reasons to give up. Think of reasons not to give up, to stay strong, to stay focused, and to persevere. Once you set yourself at something, keep your eye on your goal and employ the final principle: "Never give up!" [Kelly, The Rhythm of Life]

Do not say: "I feel awful," rather say: "I do not feel very well." Do not say: "I am ruined," rather say: "I am having some difficulties." [Saying of the Prophet, as recorded in Bukhari Collection]
